miss k (oft-mentioned, lovely friend who blogs here and makes cool stuff like this) is hosting a little shower for baby a this weekend. when she first suggested it, i tried to explain that people don't really get baby showers on round 2, especially if they're having another girl. she charmingly stated that all babies deserve to be celebrated and i couldn't argue with that. but it's just going to be a small gathering. (please don't feel bad if you weren't invited. i'm sure you were at one of piper's showers and i'm still thankful for those gifts!)
miss k asked me to put together a registry, but i told her there wasn't much we needed. once i started thinking about it, we do have a few needs and maybe a few wants...

baby needs

these were our favorite for piper and i'm sure we purchased a ton of them, but pacifiers are cosmically pulled to the same vortex as socks in the laundry.

we have some miscellaneous bottles left, but i'd like to replace them with a healthier version like these. or these. or these.

the double stroller decision is making me a bit crazy. remember how long it took me to pick piper's toddler carseat? well, this is much, much worse. side-by-side? tandem? jogger? sit&stand? $100? $600? the options are overwhelming. the two above (L: joovy ergo caboose R: valco baby twin latitude) are probably pushing the affordability limit for us. we'll see. i quite literally check craigslist daily for a miracle. nothin' yet.

baby wants

this nifty thing keeps baby warm and mommy sane.
you don't have to bundle them in eight layers plus three blankets to keep them warm. just zip 'em up tight!

somehow we survived without a bouncy seat for piper. but my sister said it's a must-have. and this one would look really cute in our kitchen and dining room. (because yes, AAP, i do plan on putting the bouncy seat on top of the dining room table.)

i'm pretty sure mobiles are meant to hypnotize your baby. that's gotta be a good thing, right? maybe she'll quit smoking, lose weight, and start sleeping through the night with this cutie.

supposedly i won't remember to fill any of it out, but it'd be nice to show baby a that we at least remembered to buy a memory book for her.

there are some things mama wants and needs, but i realized they all revolve around breastfeeding and boobs. so for any male members of this small audience, i'll spare you the details and keep my wants & needs to myself.
